In their new video for “Zick?”, Deca & Neon Brown deliver a humorous remake of the ‘80’s cult classic, They Live—mullets and all.
If you haven’t seen John Carpenter’s They Live before— and why haven’t you?— the anti-consumerism film stars the late Roddy Piper as Nada whose sunglasses reveal more than he probably wanted. Under the direction of Jeremy Dehitta and co-director Sloan Copeland, “Zick?” cleverly recreates the charm of what made They Live so captivating.
The crew pays homage to the movie in several ways, including the classic Carpenter costumes, subliminal messages advertised to the American people, and the ridiculous fight scene between Roddy Piper (Deca) and Frank Armitage (Neon Brown). After their short lived beef, the two take to their neighborhood bar only to realize that even their local watering hole isn’t safe.
Check out the creative visuals, and while you’re at it, head over to your preferred digital retailer or streaming platforms to give Deca & Neon Brown’s collaborative album, The Donner Party a spin. The eight-track project is available through all major DSPs and on vinyl in limited quantities through Deca’s Bandcamp page, via Beulah Records.
